AYPH offers consultancy work to help other organisations and strategic bodies either initiate or increase young people’s participation. We use fun, inclusive and creative techniques either face-to-face with young people or by reaching out to them through social media. We have worked with young people to produce resources for public bodies such as NHS England, Public Health England, Pharmacy Research UK, local authorities and voluntary sector organisations like Croydon Drop-In and Cystic Fibrosis Trust. If you are interested in commissioning us to do some participation work, have a look at our participation statement that answers some FAQs.
We carried out a consultation with young people and parents to find out their views about digital online records in the form of a ‘hub’, bringing together GP and hospital records, test results, immunisations and other health information in one place. Read our findings here.
We were commissioned by Pharmacy Research UK to run workshops with a group of young people from Birmingham Children’s Hospital with juvenile arthritis. The young people created this film, which is a series of sketches and interviewed the adult professionals.
